inside pakistan in less than two weeks. the obama administration has begun 2013 with a flurry of drone attacks inside pakistan, raising speculation is accelerating the bombings before its capacity to carry them out is diminished with a planned withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of next year. according to a tally by the website long war journal, u.s. drones have already killed as many as 11 civilians and 30 suspected militants in the first 10 days of the year. if confirmed, that would mean a death ratio of more than one civilian for every three suspected militants. it would also already exceed the official civilian death toll for 2012, though that number is likely to small because u.s. policy deems all adult males as militants unless contrary evidence emerges after their deaths. according to the washington post, the future stationing of cia bases that launch the drone strikes will be among the topics discussed by the white house and afghan president karzai during karzai's current visit to washington. the obama administration has reportedly set its expectations low for passage of a n

, but the battle really is not lost. the american government, the obama administration's trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it's lost a lot of influence with iraq with the departure of american forces, one thing the american forces did give the united states was more clout inside iraq. >> talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers, this issue that you write about in your book, the end game, but also news that came out in november about the relief of ali musa; is that correct? >> guest: yeah. well, there's a number of events that i think worked against american interests in iraq, and the case you cite is one of them. he is not an iraqi. he's a lebanese-hezbollah operative who was sent into iraq at the best of the iranian's cud force because hezbollah is supported by iran for the purposes of training shiite militias fighting american troops. he was captured by leaders in a raid conducted by the brits in which there was an american presence held in detention by the united states, but then under the status of forces agreement, he was handed over to the iraqis.

the obama administration said correctly is let's collect the file together and put together a passport and review them to see who these people are. the task force was put together, then it got screwed up to start with because it took forever to put it up and it included every agency. match olsen was appointed director, lisa monaco was deputy assistant attorney general for what is it? counterterrorism. was his deputy. they had representatives from every agency from the cia defense intelligence agency, defense department. a very conservative, very conservative agency and there had to be unanimous opinion to clear anyone for release. they had -- all the agencies had to agree this person is not a threat to the united states and not of intelligence value. was extraordinarily careful, lugubrious, long process. many people who were not cleared have nothing on them but they couldn't come to unanimous agreement. very conservative people should be released. >> given the fact that yemen -- the kind of counterpoint to what was discussed is as you know the yemen prison system has been senior member

to australia for more on this story after the headlines. the obama administration has launched a review of offshore oil drilling in the arctic following a cascading series of blunders and mishaps by the oil giant shell. shell's recent troubles culminated when its drill rig ran aground last week off the alaskan coast, sparking concerns of a potential spill. past problems have included safety and environmental violations on its vessels and the failure during a test of a device meant to control a gushing well. government officials said the new 60-day review could potentially limit or halt shell's ambitions for arctic drilling. the escalating issues have followed repeated warnings by environmental groups that shell is unprepared for the harsh and dangerous conditions associated with arctic drilling. greenpeace to the new york times -- the coast guard has launched a separate investigation into the grounding of shell's drill rig last week. alleged u.s. army whistleblower bradley manning has had his potential sentence reduced should he be convicted for the leaking of classified documents to wi
the bush administration did and what the obama administration does. >> obama administration does not enhance in interrogation techniques or the -- it ended during the bush administration. the obama administration has other stories. they engage in drone attacks. but torture has been a no-go. >> rose: raising some questions about what drone attacks are. it is called the killing of so is ma bin laden. did torture play a role in finding osama bin laden and killing him. >> yes it did. it played a role it didn't play a key role but definitely speaking specifically, the fact that there was this fellow called ahmed from kuwait surfaced in a number of the early coercive interrogations. at the time the interrogators and the c.i.a. didn't know who that was in particular so i would have to say the most important piece of information and i don't know how we obtained it exactly was connecting that from kuwait to a real person ahmed. that was really the key. so i think those who argue that the hunt for bin laden really gained traction when we attach that name to a person can argue i think fair

of the national security legacy of the obama administration thus far. john brennan has thus far during the obama presidency been the most visible face of that policy. when the obama administration decided just this past year that for the first time they were going to admit to the fact that they do this, instead of just allowing it to be reported while they never confirmed it, it was john brennan they had give that speech. he is the man who has been the face of the u.s. government basically outfitting a second air force outside the u.s. military to kill people around the world without the chain of command and authority and political responsibility that we expect from the u.s. military. if there were any doubts about how president obama feels as part of his legacy, about whether president obama was going to be shy about that being a central part of his national security legacy as president, those doubts would presumably be laid to rest today when he nominated john brennan to be head of the cia, offering this big promotion to the man who more than anybody else in government stands for that drone po
. he was the first obama administration official to publicly confirm drone attacks overseas and to defend their legalities. war on expected nominations of chuck hagel and john brennan after the headlines. the obama administration reportedly is considering keeping a residual force between three and 9000 troops in afghanistan after the formal withdrawal date of 2014. the wall street journal cited the new figures after previous reports suggested the u.s. is mulling a troop deployment of up to 20,000. bahrain top court has upheld the convictions of 13 opposition leaders on allegations of plotting to overthrow the u.s.- backed regime. the activists were sentenced by military court in 2011, eight of them to live behind bars after leading massive protests against bahrain's sunni monarchy. today's ruling marks the end of their legal options after an appeals court upheld the convictions in september. another seven activists were also convicted in the initial case, but did not file appeals because they were tried in absentia. soon president bashar al-assad is vowing to continue his go
in that case why hasn't the obama administration done more to help achieve that? i think the answer is because the obama administration is still desperate to find a way to negotiate with iran over the nuclear weapons program. i know if we were to get involved in the conflict against sa assad there would be no way the iranians would negotiate. >> what can the administration do? >> i don't think there's much they can do as long as they are not willing to take on russia and iran. the reset button has worked out well as we can see here. the administration is hosted by fat tar. >> good to see you. seems our fighting with continue with assad in place. >>> eric, thanks. there are growing concerns the deadly flu outbreak is sweeping across the country and there is high demand causing vaccine shortages not to worry, though. we will have all of the tips you need on the best way to protect yourself. police confronted suspected gunman inside a movie theater. tell you what happened when we come back. caring for their lives and lives of others one of the officers fired at the suspect striking the suspect. h
term how aggressive the obama administration will choose to be on antitrust issues. they've just confirmed a new head of the antitrust division, bill baer, and we have yet to know what sort of tone. they've been very aggressive. they've blocked several other technology cases. google's antitrust suit could without risk of hyperbole shape the landscape of the internet. because if google is not allowed to continue doing business as it does, it would change the understanding of the search market as it currently stands, and a sort of uninterested arbiter of links. it sees itself as an answers engine. essentially, they're offering consumers services they wallet. once the government starts defining markets on the internet, then they become again, you know, isolated, and there will be rules to them, and it will put barriers to entry for smaller companies, so it would have a far-reaching impact if they were to take some sort of action on the core question as brendan mentioned. what we saw, i think, was that a very sophisticated lobbying campaign by google, i think, on both sides of the ai
unattractive, the obama administration needs to see if there is a path through which it can pressure iran to make a deal. in a thoughtful essay in the current issue of "foreign affairs" the columbia scholar jurvis points out that this kind of coercive diplomacy, at least from washington, has rarely worked. he points out in panama, 1989, iraq, 1990, serbia, 1998, afghanistan, 2001 and iraq, 2003, washington tried sanctions pressure and the threat of force to get leaders to change course, it didn't work. and washington had to make good on its threat to go to war. with north korea, coercive diplomacy also failed, but in this case, washington decided against military action choosing, instead, to contain the regime. making coercive diplomacy requires a mix of threats and promises. with regard to iran, the administration has made the threats plenty of times. with clarity and credibility. but while the sticks have been handled shrewdly, the carrots have not. the united states is unable to define for itself or for the world what would be an acceptable deal and, most importantly, what it is willin
to be the best of the best operations according to both shell and the obama administration, and it turned out to be no match for the arctic. one of my colleagues put it quite well earlier today when he was talking about this can't be another paper exercise. they have to really dig into what happened here, and the secretary salazar said he didn't want to pre-suppose any inclusionsconclusions but it's hard to cool to any conclusion but that shell screwed up, and the arctic is no match for the technology they'll put up there. >> cenk: the arctic sounds like to "the young turks" too strong. i'm skeptical about the administration because i've seen when they've reallowed drilling in the gulf coast. well, the safety precautions you know, it's a work in progress. that makes me really concerned. is my concern about the obama administration in this realm justified or not justified. >> totally justified. shell has a lot of egg on their face right now. but the fact of the matter is the obama administration pretty much okayed this operation. you look at what shell is trying to do. the whole process is a d
for his role in the obama administration's drone warfare overseas. in his remarks at the time, brennan had said there was not a single collateral death in the previous year of drone attacks. his letter qualified his remarks by saying he had no information to the at the time. it has been revealed the u.s. a massacre at the time convict pakistani concerns directly to the highest levels of the obama white house. the concern centered around a march 2011 strike that killed 42 pakistani, most of them civilians. vice-president joe biden met with gun control advocates at the white house on wednesday as part of his task force on tackling gun violence in the united states. in a welcome message to his guests, biden vowed president obama would take meaningful action through executive order if need be. >> we are here today to deal with the problem that requires immediate action, urgent action. the president and i are determined to take action. this is not an exercise in a photo opportunity just ask you what your opinions are. we're reaching out to all parties on whatever side of this debate you fall. b
panetta, no different than anybody else in the obama administration. >> senator kerrey, you have been in politics all these years. what is the vehemence about? is it the sense he's just too much to the left of the right wing? what is the new standard for middle east politics in being secretary of defense for the united states? >> well, that's a good question. i think it's going to be proven in his testimony that he's a very strong supporter of the united states being a strong ally of israel. i mean, that's really the bottom line. are you willing to be an ally of israel, yes or no, and he's going to answer emphatically yes. his votes and his record confirm that. does he have disagreements from time to time with the prime minister of israel? the answer is yes. but, you know, i have disagreements from time to time with the president of the united states, but that doesn't mean i don't support the united states of america. so, i mean, i think the representations that he's going to be terrible for israel i just think is wrong. and i think when he gets before the armed services committee, i
the obama administration was going to be like on this score. there was a u.s. drone strike in pakistan roughly every three days in 2010. 9 new america foundation tracks these things and their record shows it was an unprecedented spike in terms of how frequently we were killing people in pakistan using this particular method of killing people even though pakistan is supposedly not a war zone for us, at least not more than anywhere else in the world. interestingly, though, in 2013 it dropped off. in 2011 we launched from dropping drone strikes in pakistan roughly every three days to launching them on average every five days. then in 2012 it dropped off even further. we were launching a drone strike in pakistan about every seven or eight days as of 2012. well, how is this year shaping up? it is january 10th. so so far there have only been ten days in 2013. of those ten days in 2013 so far we have launched a drone strike in pakistan on seven out of those ten days. now, maybe that is an aberration. maybe those are the only seven we will have this year and by the end of the year our average

there. it's an interesting tactic. make a quick point. the obama administration is selectively picks its issues it wants to go after and the one it doesn't. arizona decided they had their own immigration law. the department of justice says no, no, you can't do that. we'll sue you. arizona sues arizona. they will enforce the federal law, not the arizona law. pot in colorado, pot in washington state, you have your own law there. we'll look the other way on your law there. because they don't care about it. >> andrea: california. >> eric: not so much california. but the point they want guns. they want to go after guns so they will find a way, find an tissue go and really beef up the gun control. >> andrea: they also shrekively picked their allies, bob, right? >> bob: what administration doesn't pick issues they want to go after? >> eric: it esegregious. >> andrea: what about their allies? remember we listened to the left say wal-mart was evil, terrible now. they're partnering up with them? the nra was at the meeting today. they put out a statement. i know you have thoughts on it. here is wha
as the obama administration's failure to negotiate a status forces agreement with iraq to allow u.s. forces to stay there, and iraq has gone downhill. that's the narrative. there's also bengazy, and there's sort of a -- there's been building this sense among republicans that the obama administration is not strong enough on counterterrorism, is not tough enough, somehow is hiding its ineptness, and i think that's what's behind this, and it's all going to come out, again, with something we haven't talked about yet, which is the nomination of john brennan, the cia director. here's a guy who was pulled back from being nominated four years ago because of his alleged ties to torture and interrogation techniqu techniques. he was george bush's counterterrorism guy. it comes with a lot of baggage. as dave wood outlines, there are reasons for, and there are reasons why chuck hagel's potential fom nation is problematic for the white house. there's also when you sort of read the palace intrigue, read about the palace intrigue, get into the palace intrigue, there's this notion that president obama likes
